"Have you come across an annoying bug in Mozilla 0.7 or a recent Mozilla daily build? Or, is there perhaps a feature you would like to see in the Mozilla browser-suite that is not in there now? If so, Bugzilla might be just the Mozilla World's, cabinet-level lizard for you."

"Bugzilla is the Mozilla Project's designated lizard for quality control (aka quality assurance, QA) and technical support. But, before you waken this lizard there are some things you should know about Bugzilla, his care, his handling, and his feeding."

"Perhaps foremost is that Bugzilla is for Mozilla products only. It is not for Netscape 6 or other products that are based upon Mozilla but adapted by other software developers such as Netscape or NeoPlanet. If you yank on Bugzilla's frail tail to bother him about a non-Mozilla product, do not be surprised if you experience the dragon's hot, fiery breath -- or he might simply ignore you."
